Looking after you and your family during challenging times.
What is palliative care?
The aim of palliative care is to provide treatment, care, and supportive assistance to people with life-limiting diseases, their families, and friends. In palliative care, you will be able to remain as independent and active as possible during your remaining time, while having a quality of life that matches your choices and wishes. Palliative care involves supporting patients’ emotional and spiritual well-being, as well as managing symptoms such as pain. An illness that is likely to cause death is a life-limiting illness. These include cancers that are not curable, motor neuron diseases, and advanced dementia.
The goal of palliative care is to relieve symptoms while still ensuring you live the life you choose and achieve your goals. The aim of end-of-life care is to give you the dignity and comfort you need to end your life the way you wish, while receiving much-needed emotional and personal support in the place of your choice, reducing unnecessary hospital stays.

Take care of yourself
It can be extremely difficult to care for a loved one in their final months or days, particularly if their condition worsens over time.
As an illness progresses, you may find that providing care and support becomes more physically and emotionally challenging, and you may begin to feel that you are not doing enough.
Let us provide you with a health professional or a specialist to handle tasks you can no longer do so that you can relieve some of the stress.
